Default Fishing the jetties in Destin FL

A couple of years ago I landed a 4ft. Redfish on spinning gear. What fly would it take to do the same with a fly rod. It was caught at about one oclock a.m. in October. I believe they may have been spawning but could be wrong.

Everybody else that was fishing had to stop and some came to help me land it. When hooked it turned for open ocean and when I saw the bottom of the spool I had to tighten drag and hope everything held. Finally it stopped but was so heavy that it was still a job bringing it in. It came to my chin and it's tail was on the ground. I am 5'7".
